Thanks a lot for moving that. I confirmed My item is now located in the Moving Image Archive > Iraq War: Peace Movement collection.

Web browsers and clients can access the item - no problems.
http://www.archive.org/details/TroopWithdrawalResolutionFailsInFortCollinsColorado

But, now I have a NEW problem. I can no longer access my item's "Edit Item". I can't add files. I can't access the Metadata Editor.

I'm hoping this is just a temporary malfunction due to being moved. Will the Indexer's crawler catch up soon, and pick up the path change? Will it get corrected in the Master Index automatically? If not, can you patch the Master Index for me, and fix this please? Thank you.

As the Admin, I'm stuck in no man's land now. When I go to Edit my new Item you just moved, I'm getting, "The specified item was not found "live" in the US cluster or does not have metadata."

A quick spot-check of all my Audio Items shows I'm able to access "Edit Item" and make changes to all of them normally.

"items are randomly weird lately, does it work now?"

Holy crap batman... I mean Detective...

I've been working on finishing this Item by doing my Metadata upgrade. I've been at it all day long, ever since I got up today... probably over 14 hours non-stop working. Sure, I made tons of edits and changes to it today - the Metadata Editor. I added one JPG image file. No other File changes. My Item "was" in the Iraq War: Peace Movement video collection this morning - 13 hours ago, when I posted, "YES! [it works] I'm happy! Very, very cool."

Mysteriously, My Item has now vanished from "Iraq War: Peace Movement", and moved back into "Community Video".

I can no longer access my item's "Edit Item" again. I can't add files. I can't access the Metadata Editor.

It was working fine all day. I've been working on it throughout today. I was doing another slew of edits and upgrades. Everything was fine. In fact, the response times from IA servers, for implementing my changes, were very quick. I was very impressed. I got an enormous amount of web design work accomplished. I'm nearly finished. I'm just doing my last bit of fine tuning and touch-ups. It's getting polished now. Nice web presentation. Media-rich, very informative, in-depth news expose. Thanks a lot for the privileges.

But I'm stuck in no man's land again right now. This happened about an hour ago. When I go to Edit my Item, I'm getting the dreaded, "The specified item was not found "live" in the US cluster or does not have metadata."

I can tell you that the IA download counter just changed and updated for my Item. What else happened? My download counter's update seems to coincide with what just happened to repeat this malfunction.

Web Browsing clients get served all my files just fine - No Problems there. Firefox, Opera, and Windows Exploder browsers render fine presentation of my web content.

The Path to my Item remains correct:
Moving Image Archive > Iraq War: Peace Movement > Troop withdrawal resolution fails in Fort Collins, Colorado

http://www.archive.org/details/TroopWithdrawalResolutionFailsInFortCollinsColorado

I can access my other Items No Problems. Just this item.

does it work now?

YES! I'm happy! Very, very cool.

Thank you. It must have been an indexer glitch, and the old "path" incorrectly remained cached in the system for awhile. Stuff like that should never happen. I just looked at it this morning, and I'm editing this item again. NO PROBLEMS! Incredible.

btw, what you've just done for peace in The World, is to let me increase the Iraq War: Peace Movement video collection, from 40 items, to 41 items. It just increased by a whopping 2½%!! That's pretty impressive, it appears to me. All I did was to add One Item. I thought this was a pretty big deal. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Archive crawlers and indexers are fantastic. My keywords for this item have made it into Master Indices very quickly. Search Engines are finding them already. For clients who invoke my keyword terms and search for them... Bingo! My Item gets found by these clients, and it is listed in their web browsers. This is working like magic! I meant to say, SYNERGY! lmao...

That was fast! I've been googling a few of these search terms and testing it. Admins who are managing Items here on The Archive: you might consider doing this. It is extremely powerful and very effective. (words and terms that are written into postings, on The Archive Forums, get similarly indexed and "found" by clients who are searching for "them".) I'm happy to share this with everyone.
